The Signature Series Salamander flute is a refined design with the colors, striping and texture of the quilted maple wood reminding us of our local Sonoran Tiger Salamander. Much like this wood species these beautiful creatures are rare and reclusive.
A good friend, who is aware of our passion for wood, turned us on to a generous amount of Quilted Maple. Turns out this wood is not only amazingly beautiful, it is also a clear tonal wood.
With these special wood species every flute has its unique grain pattern.
The dark red walnut fetish accents the salamander's sleek contours. This flute is a functional art piece. We highly recommend displaying it on a flute stand. Not only will this show it off in your home, office, or wherever you play, it will inspire you to play more often.
Being a Signature Series flute, this flute has wonderfully clear high notes and warm full low notes. Very little breath pressure is needed to play it. This feature allows easy control over the notes and playing techniques. It has a strong voice and is extremely responsive, which gives the player an intimate connection with each note.
The flute is tuned in the key of "F#" minor and can also be played in the relative major diatonic scale, in the key of "A”.
It is hand polished to a fine finish with several layers of non-toxic oils.
We continually strive to improve our flute designs and to craft instruments that are responsive, have superior tonal quality and exceptional amplitude. In this ongoing quest, we developed a new airflow combination that minimizes the amount of turbulence going through the flute. Utilizing this new airflow design, we created the High Spirits Signature Series. Signature Series flutes have a broad, balanced voice that express warm, low notes and clean, clear high notes. These flutes require very little breath pressure, allowing for better control over the notes and a wider range of playing styles.
This flute is 22.25 inches (56 cm) long.
